Question: What happens when a group of creative, organized, hard-working, fun and community-minded women come together? Answer: 2017 at the AWCB.
And what a year it’s been! AWCB members and friends have enjoyed parties, day trips, art exhibitions, planning meetings, coffees, service projects, luncheons, performances, fundraisers and more. They conducted a successful all-clubhouse cleanup, continued the Moving Forward process, welcomed new members, and celebrated special milestones! All in addition to completing the legal legwork to place the clubhouse on the market, and running a successful Christmas Market. Whew!
On December 15, the AWCB family enjoyed some well-deserved relaxation at the annual Christmas and Holiday Lunch. Forty members and friends came together in our main meeting room, where traditional holiday décor complemented the bright colors of Maria Andrade's paintings. Friends old and new enjoyed conversation over a 3-course meal from Traiteur Charles-Henry. AWCB’s own chorale, the Women of Note, performed a selection of holiday favorites and helped guests to find their own inner music with a light-hearted sing-along. Rumor has it that there may even have been some dancing!
The coming year will be an historic one for the club, as we move out of our current location and make important decisions about our future. If 2017 is any indication, the AWCB spirit is more than up to the challenge.
